[b]Name[/b]:Feel free to add any other information to this basic layout. I want you to love your character, be excited, and go crazy with your idea. I am pretty active, so you won't have to wait too long for me to skim your profile for approval. At the moment, I am not putting a character or gender limit. I want to see how many people are actually interested in this idea first. However, if you know 100% that you'll be participating in this RP, feel free to reply to this recruitment thread with the element you want (in the case you are choosing to play a Knight of the Athos or Rogue Knight). Elements and the High Maria are first-come, first-serve, so be sure to reserve them.How the RP Will Begin
[b]Alias[/b]: (for veteran knights of The Athos and the 12 Adepts - a title your character is known as)
[b]Gender[/b]: (Male players must play males, and female players must play females—no futa)
[b]Race[/b]: (Knight, Maria, Human, Rogue Knight, Potential Knight, Potential Maria, High Maria)
[b]Element[/b]: (for knights only – choose one element from the periodic table)
[b]Weapon[/b]: (if you’re a knight, then you put the weapon your element becomes, if you control a gas, then put N/A unless you can think of something creative, if not a knight, then put w/e weapon you want. However, if you’re a normal human, then I don’t expect normal humans to be “packin’”. I will be checking this over)
[b]Level[/b]: (for knights only 1 or 2)
[b]Cup Size[/b]: (for females only)
[b]Basic Description[/b]: (written description)
[b]Visual[/b]: (photo if you want)
[b]Talents[/b]: (this includes hobbies – cooking, dancing, singing, etc.)
[b]Major[/b]: (For those attending Jericho University)
[b]Grade Year[/b]: (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior)
[b]Background[/b]: (the background can be basic. This isn’t really a must if you can’t come up with something right away. The background can include what your character is currently doing or whatever you want really that explains more about your character)
For those players starting off already as Knights or Marias, whether Level 1 or Level 2, your life begins in St. Gabriel’s Academy. Your character can have come from any country in the world. They can be European, South American, African, Asian, etc. The Academy will resemble a church, but imagine Xavier’s School for the Gifted. I will create a thread for all play that goes on in the academy. As well, it will list all the floors and facilities within.
The Knight’s and Maria’s first mission will be to pose as transfer students to Jericho University
. All other players, Potentials, Normal Humans, and Rogues will also begin at this school (this school will also have a thread). Both the Athos Knights and Rogue Knights will be undercover seeking out Potentials or even the High Maria.
For those Knights who don’t have a Maria and are looking forward to having their Knight find their Maria (thus their Maria being a Potential one), then in the case that they find their Maria in game, those knights will be required to live with their Maria in their house, apartment, etc. so that she is always in his or her presence. So yes, free-loading. Their Maria can then be taken to The Academy for training.
I will be revealing missions throughout the RP. Players of The Athos may learn about it from the Head of the Academy and Rogue Players will learn about it from one of the Rogue Players who I will PM. I will be giving The Rogue players their own secret hideout so they will have a place to hang when not at school. To start us off, the first clue that all players know except for the Normal Humans, is that the Stagnum Dea is rumored to be hidden somewhere on the grounds of the university
1. No Smuttin’.
As I said above, this is not a smut RP, so if that is all you were hoping to get, then this isn’t the game for you. This game is for players who enjoy a balanced level of storyline and sexual play.
2. Males must play Male Characters and Females must play Female Characters.
I am sorry, but I have had several incidents in the past where I had too many male players playing women, and I didn’t want anymore female characters, so I had to stop accepting females and those female players who wanted to be females were out of luck. So please, stick to your gender. If you’re a liege, then choose whatever you want.
3. OOC will remain in the OOC thread
. That is what the OOC is made for so please do not post OOC bubbles in the IC. If you’re going somewhere or are trying to talk to someone specifically, PM them or use the OOC thread. Thanks.
4. Do not post pictures in the IC thread
. I never saw the point in that. We can always go see who your character is. Please don’t post pictures in the IC thread. You can easily post them in the OOC thread. Also, I notice some people like to post pictures in the IC thread because they feel it helps them convey what they are describing better. Usually people who post pictures in the IC thread, post ridiculously enormous pics. If you are a writer, then conveying the mental image you're trying to present in your writing won't be difficult. A mental image is more effective than an actual image because the reader's opinion creates what you're trying to describe. If you are reliant on pictures, then use this RP to learn how to not be reliant on them and to practice bettering description and detail in your writing.
5. Do not auto-hit another player’s character.
There is a correct way to attack the character of another player and that is to write the action as an intention. Meaning it hasn’t happened yet, but depending on the other player’s response, it can happen. Example: Bob swings his fist at Jay’s jaw.
In that statement, the action was never confirmed to have happened. The intention is just there. In the case of two characters running into conflict, I recommend they discuss how the fight will occur in the OOC to eliminate any drama.
6. What I say goes
. I try to be as fair as possible, if you’re trying to ask a favor of me that I say “No” to, then please respect that it’s no. Do not argue with me. No is no.
. Do not join this RP if you do not plan on interacting with another player. I will not allow tea parties. Tea parties are when two players constantly post to one another and ignore everyone else. This RP kind of makes interaction very impossible. I don’t see why a tea party would start up when your characters are all working together. If your characters are separated from the group, then this is fine. I’m sure you know what I mean by tea parties anyway, so I’m not going to drawl this explanation on.
8. Respect each other’s O/Os.
I recommend players keep in contact with anyone they are interacting with. Always make sure that what you are doing doesn’t offend another player. If there is a problem in the RP that you wish to tell me, the GM, you are welcome to PM if you think it may affect your continuation with this RP.
9. Do not control another player’s character.
Always give the other player a chance to respond. If you feel impatient, then go do something else. Take a break. There is no hurry.
10. Post at least 200 words.
This isn’t a lot. I just do not like one-lining. So please try and meet the 200 words minimum. I will be making sure everyone’s post meets this. It is easy to see when someone’s post is below 200 words.
. This is what makes RPs last a long time. If you disappear please be courteous to let us know in the OOC. I can make adjustments to the RP this way. If you quit, then please say you’re leaving. But once you quit, please refrain from talking in the OOC. Once you are gone, you are gone. The OOC is for players involved in this storyline.
12. RP Speed
I expect people to post once a day or at least 2 to 3 times a week. I understand everyone is busy. I'm busy at times. I want this RP to move at a comfortable speed. If a player hasn't posted for 4 days straight, without informing the Rpers of his or her negligence then skip him or her. If you can’t skip them, then you have every right to NPC them in what you think they would logically do in such a situation. However, when it comes to sexual situations, you are not permitted to NPC them.
13. No Futanari
14. Your characters must be 18+
. I will not allow your characters to be younger than 18. Understand, if your character is 18, they won't be permitted to drink. Jericho City is a fictional city, but it's fictional within the United States
15. Have fun
. Please write enough so that we can appreciate your character. I am very lenient with this RP, but please don’t give me a reason to be strict. Use spell check, read over your posts, and don’t post for the hell of it.
If no one has posted yet, then don’t just post to post because it makes you feel accomplished. That is clutter. Do not clutter up the RP. At the end of the day, when people get out of classes or off work, they want to come online and find something worth reading. Just go find something to do until someone posts a reply.Approved PlayersSarah Kayumi - (Maria) - JoslynAsine Dusk - (Rogue Knight) - Curium User - JDrew SpiderMisty Carnes - (Potential Maria) - NazoraAlexander Wainwright - (Athos Knight) - Carbon User - IksanderMarkus Helgarson - (Rogue Knight) - Phosphorus User - RevenentJason Raines - (Athos Knight) - Hydrogen User - StarlequinDean Bishop - (Potential Knight) - Oxygen User - Dark DeceptionLinksCharacter ThreadOOCSt. Gabriel's AcademyJericho UniversityThe Ivory FortressDean's ApartmentQ&AThis is where questions asked by players that weren’t answered in the above explanation will be answered.ClarificationsThis is where I will write any clarifications if something seems confusing.
